Davis’s session, “Is Your Crisis Communications Plan Still in a 3‐Ring Binder?” will provide attendees with strategic advice on how to prepare for a communications crisis, including practical steps to convert a traditional crisis communications plan to a mobile version that can be accessed by multiple people, wherever the team happens to be.
“When a crisis hits, you’re not necessarily sitting at your desk with the plan at your side,” he said. “You’ll most likely be at a mall, at an off‐site meeting, or on a soccer field when that call comes in and you’ll need to be prepared to access your plan and deal with the situation immediately.
“I am honored to have been selected to speak at this year’s NAGC Communications School and look
forward to sharing my insights and actionable tips for communicators attending the conference,” he
